Shiftwork Disorder: Causes, Consequences and Countermeasures
Dr. Duffy is an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a lead investigator in the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders in the Department of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Dr. Duffy is a clinical researcher whose work focuses on understanding how the circadian timing system impacts sleep and subsequent waking performance and what factors contribute to individual differences in sleep timing, duration, need, quality and response to sleep loss. Her studies have looked at how sleep and waking function change with aging, what makes someone an “early bird” or a “night owl” and whether the sleep and circadian rhythms of men and women differ.
